OK, it turned out to be a pretty severe problem. Meanwhile subversion has
a patch that at least doesn't abort due to out of memory. But my emulated
scripty commit timed took at least 3 hours (after that I went to bed, but when
I woke up, it was finished :). It wouldn't be too bad, if this would only 
happen at kde-i18n commits. But unfortunately it happens with all commits
that are interleaved (and you can guess, with one commit taking 3 hours it's
very likely ;(

But there is hope as the subversion developers are discussing a new algorithm.
This again means we won't be able to deploy subversion 1.1 out of the box.
So I will have to give this issue some more time to solve. 

Greetings, Stephan
